Master the art of making Pizza Hut’s iconic Pan Pizza at home with this detailed guide, featuring step-by-step instructions and expert tips.




  • 1 1/3 cup warm water (110°F)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 packet (or 2 1/4 tsp.) dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup non-fat dry milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil (for the dough)
  • 35 tablespoons canola oil (for greasing pans)


  • 1 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp dry oregano
  • 1/2 tsp marjoram
  • 1/2 tsp dry basil
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt

For Each Pizza:

  • Shredded mozzarella cheese (and a little cheddar, optional)
  • Toppings of choice (e.g., turkey pepperoni)


  1. Prepare the Dough: In a large bowl, combine yeast and sugar. Add warm water to dissolve the yeast and let sit for 5 minutes until it blooms.
  2. Add non-fat dry milk, salt, oil, and 2-3 cups of flour. Stir until dough forms and flour is absorbed. Turn out onto a flat surface and knead for about 10 minutes, adding enough flour to achieve a soft, supple dough.
  3. Divide the dough into three balls. Grease three 9″ cake pans with canola oil, ensuring even coverage. Roll out each dough ball into a 9″ circle and place in the pans. Cover and let rise in a warm area for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

Prepare the Sauce: Combine tomato sauce, oregano, marjoram, basil, and garlic salt. Let sit for 1 hour.


  1. Oven Preparation: Preheat the oven to 420-450°F.
  2. Assemble the Pizza: Spoon 1/3 cup of sauce onto the dough, leaving a 1″ edge. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella (and cheddar, if using), then add your chosen toppings.
  3. Bake: Place in the oven and bake until the cheese is bubbling and the crust is golden brown, about 15 minutes.
